Hair testing for disease causing fungus
How does the fungus affected hair look like?
Hair fungal diseases are more common in childhood. If your hair is infected by fungus, scalp skin peeling (dandruff) may occur, the skin is red, you may have areas with thinned hair or have hair falling out.
How is hair fungus diagnosed?
When the above mentioned changes occur, microscopic examination of hair and hair tests with Vudo lamp lighting are carried out. Under the Vudo lamp light, some fungus glow a certain color and it makes it possible to suspect a fungal disease and the species of the fungus, but this study does not provide a reliable diagnosis. Microscopic study of hair shows the fungal spores and mycelium. However, this study cannot determine the type of fungus, so it is recommended to perform a seeding (platting) to choose the proper treatment
When should you start treating hair fungus?
It is recommended to start hair fungus treatment as early as possible. Hair fungal diseases are usually treated not only with local, but also with systemic anti-fungal medications.
